THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Acts (Author Luke)

8:27And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

8:28Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.

8:29Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.

8:30And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

8:31And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.

8:32The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:

8:33In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.

8:34And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?

8:35Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

8:36And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?

8:37And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

8:38And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

8:39And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
